Heat shrink tubing Ricable Custom now available

Another piece is added to the mosaic Ricable. We are talking about the heat shrink sleeves Ricable Custom, which also find application in the Hi-Fi field and are distinguished, in full Ricable tradition, by a higher quality than normal.

Heat shrink tubing for Hi-Fi cables. Where and how are they used?

Why use a heat shrink sleeve and in what context to do so? The areas can be reduced to three if we are talking about Hi-Fi, thus excluding its normal use with electrical cables:

  • Identification
  • Insulation
  • Finishing

Let's take a step-by-step look at its meaning. Let us preface this by saying that the area of reference is always that of wiring (both that which connects the electronics and that which consists of the cables that connect the components of the electronics themselves). By identification we mean a use of sheathing that involves sheathing different cables with different colors so that they can be distinguished at a glance, especially when we are about to build cables with anonymous connectors-think of the distinction between "left" and "right" within a signal cable. Insulation is the function of separating one conductor from another within, say, a power cable. With trimming, finally, we think of how a shrink sleeve can be an absolute aesthetic plus for our DIY Hi-Fi cables, so as to finish a product "of a certain type."

Regarding the application of heat shrink tubing in a practical sense, it is very simple. Having taken all the necessary measurements (i.e., those of the diameter of the cable and the relative sheathing), it will only be necessary to slide the sheathing over the junction point you intend to insulate. At this point it will be a matter of heating the sheath with the heat gun with temperature from 84 to 120 °C, until it shrinks and forms a tight winding around the junction.

Heat shrink tubing of all sizes, with superior quality

Shrink sleeves Ricable Custom offer wide choice in both form and substance. The first differentiation is that they come in shrink ratios of both 2:1 (thus 50 percent) and 3:1 (about 66 percent). In addition, all major requirements in terms of size are covered. They range from 1 mm internal diameter of the phono cable of the turntable to 30 mm of the Speaker and power cables in the case of the 2:1 conduits.

In the case of the 3:1 ones, the sizes range from 3 mm to 39 mm. What is the parameter that at the level of heat shrink sleeves distinguishes the poor one from the quality one? In the case of the conduits Ricable Custom is the material from which they are made. It is, specifically, high-quality cross-linked polyolefin. This feels rubbery, not "plastic," to the touch, and provides superior flexibility, especially if we are talking about the conduits with a 2:1 shrinkage ratio. Alongside these two features are other advantages typical of premium products, such as excellent resistance to abrasion, corrosion and burns, as well as CE, RoHS, UL, SGS and FCC certificates.

Heat shrink tubing Ricable Custom: where to buy it?

At the best price and with as many benefits as possible, the answer is: Ricable Custom. Last but not least: 3:1 ratio heat shrinkable conduits come only in black coloring, those with 2:1 shrink ratio offer a few more solutions. Those who like to wire in style can also choose the red and white ones. Especially the latter is perfect should you need to note something on it with a marker.
